PRODUCTS FASTENINGS & ADHESIVES ADHESIVE TAPES


Available from Eurobond, MultiSeal Pro is a high grade nano closed-cell polyurethane pressure sensitive adhesive tape, developed specifically for sealing/bonding and or cushioning applications in the electronics, automotive and white goods manufacturing industries. Thanks to its cushioning properties,


this can also be used as an anti-rattle and vibration dampening tape in many other applications in the automotive and transportation industries. The tape is reinforced with a 50


micron thick polyester film, giving it high dimensional stability, supported by high cohesive strength, high moisture resistance and exceptional performance over a large temperature range, the company claims. The reinforcing film also allows the seal to be removed, leaving no adhesive or residue on the substrate surface.

BLIND FASTENER RANGE MEETS THE DEMANDS OF LIGHTWEIGHT PRODUCT DESIGN


Needing safety-critical fasteners that they could rely on for the expected lifetime of their product, designers at a professional and domestic aluminium ladder manufacturer turned to Bollhoff. The first task that the design team needed to address was to include a mechanical ‘stop’ on the folding mechanism that would allow the ladder to be opened out by sections prior to use and also be folded down, again by section, afterwards. A further requirement was to evaluate the fastening options for the mounts into which the various sections of the ladder would rest as it extended upwards when in use, and which would be taking the full weight of users plus any equipment they might be carrying. For this, one bracket was required on each of the upright sections for each of the extended sections to rest in. Other considerations included the amount of


weight that the ladder needed to be certified as safe to carry, that the ladders may be used outdoors, and


that the aluminium sections being fastened into were thin walled to help reduce weight. So, to meet the application demands, Bollhoff recommended its RIVNUT blind fastener. Designed to provide extremely high pull out strength, this fastener can be supplied with a number of corrosion- protection finishes and is designed for use in thin-walled materials. Bollhoff’s Clive Brown commented:


“Most of us make use of a ladder at some point during the year so we fully understood what the manufacturers meant when they demanded that their load carrying criteria needed to


be safely met. By delivering fasteners with adequate corrosion protection we also provided satisfaction that the described in-service life could be met. This was deemed vital given the potential costs involved of products being returned by customers in the field.”


Bollhoff SPECIALLY ENGINEERED SECURITY FASTENERS


Specialist security fasteners, engineered to prevent theft, deter vandalism and boost health and safety, are now available from TR Fastenings. Complementing the company’s industrial


fastenings range, these have added features to ensure that the products and their enclosed components cannot be tampered with or become loose. They also ensure that the components within the enclosed structures cannot be removed, other than by a specially trained technician with bespoke tools. Products include machine screws, self-tapping


screws, wood screws and self-drilling screws, as well as specialist nuts and drivers. A number of different drive options are available, including pin hexagon, triangular, Kinmar, six lobe pin, Sentinel, Solok, Scroll, Nogo, Tufnut, Armour Ring, oval, shear and more. Design features of the fasteners include unusual


shapes to prevent tampering; tapered diameters; and increased frictional resistance within the bolt, limiting rotation and making it more difficult for the part to be loosened. In addition, features such as shear torques and smooth finishes mean that these fasteners can be ultra-secure while offer aesthetic values, a consideration when used in high- end and luxury environments. The fastenings are used across


applications where the components being


protected are expensive or function-critical. This could include sophisticated technology, products in high risk environments, or public property which needs to be protected from theft and tampering.

QUALITY OF SOLDER JOINTS IN REAL TIME


New from Ellsworth Adhesives is the compact Metcal CV-510 Connection Validation Soldering System, a companion station to the CV-5210 Soldering system. Connection Validation is a patented technology which can evaluate the quality of the solder joint by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and then provides feedback to the operator. This offers not only control of the tip temperature but also closed-loop feedback in real time to the operator via the integrated light in the handpiece. The Metcal CV-510 soldering system is


SECURITY COMPONENTS HELP SAFEGUARD AGAINST THEFT, VANDALISM AND TAMPERING


With the need to safeguard against theft, vandalism and tampering becoming an increasingly important design consideration, Hafren security fasteners from Challenge Europe are being selected for security applications in projects around the world. An example is engineering equipment to prevent tampering while leaving access available to qualified personnel with specialist tools, such as two hole head designs or pin hex screw heads and barrel nuts. Typical applications include architecture, parks and


playgrounds, automotive, instrumentation, airports and rail stations, prisons, signage, fencing, regeneration projects, public venues and on the street. Most designs are removable in some way by use of


specialist tools while other designs (shear nuts and shear bolts, for example) are not intended for removal other than by destruction.

ideal for surface mount device (SMD) touch-up and small component rework. The system is embedded with SmartHeat technology, which senses the thermal load and instantly delivers power on demand directly to the joint. This ensures soldering is performed in a fast, safe and repeatable process with no calibration required.
